Imaging modalities in radiology produce ever-increasing amounts of data which need to be displayed, optimized, analyzed and archived: a “big data” as well as an “image processing” problem. Computer programming skills are rarely emphasized during the education and training of medical physicists, meaning that many individuals enter the workplace without the ability to efficiently solve many real-world clinical problems.
This book provides a foundation for the teaching and learning of programming for medical physicists and other professions in the field of Radiology and offers valuable content for novices and more experienced readers alike.
It focuses on providing readers with practical skills on how to implement MATLAB® as an everyday tool, rather than on solving academic and abstract physics problems. Further, it recognizes that MATLAB is only one tool in a medical physicist’s toolkit and shows how it can be used as the “glue” to integrate other software and processes together. Yet, with great power comes great responsibility. The pitfalls to deploying your own software in a clinical environment are also clearly explained. This book is an ideal companion for all medical physicists and medical professionals looking to learn how to utilize MATLAB in their work.
- Encompasses a wide range of medical physics applications in diagnostic and interventional radiology
- Advances the skill of the reader by taking them through real-world practical examples and solutions with access to an online resource of example code
- The diverse examples of varying difficulty make the book suitable for readers from a variety of backgrounds and with different levels of programming experience.

Containing over 2,100 clinical radiological images with full explanatory captions and color-coded annotations, streamlined formatting ensures readers can follow discussion points effortlessly. Bullet pointed text concentrates on essential concepts, with text boxes, tables and over 400 color illustrations supporting readers’ understanding of complex anatomic topics.
Real-world examples are presented for the readers, encompassing the vast majority of entitles likely encountered in board exams and clinical practice. Divided into two volumes, this edition is more manageable whilst remaining comprehensive in its coverage of topics, including expanded pediatric cardiac surgery descriptions, updated brain tumor classifications, and non-invasive vascular imaging. Highly accessible and informative, this is the go-to introductory textbook for radiology residents worldwide.
Over the past 30 years high-resolution CT (HRCT) has matured to become an integral part of the multidisciplinary evaluation in diffuse lung disease. In this regard, Webb, Muller and Naidich’s High-Resolution CT of the Lung, 6th Edition, is a ‘gold standard’ reference that aims to keep radiologists and pulmonologists alike at the cutting edge of the ever-evolving field of thoracic imaging. The new US-European author team continues the tradition of excellence which readers have come to expect while the underlying layout and ethos — established by the ‘founding’ author team — remain. The new edition aims to brings readers up to date not only with recent advances but also with the important conceptual changes in thinking in various fields of thoracic imaging. Also featured in this updated edition is authoritative guidance on HRCT findings and differential diagnosis, as well as the characteristics of the common lung diseases assessed using HRCT, all enhanced by a multitude of new images and updated content throughout.
Covers the physical and anatomic principles governing HRCT imaging and the importance of the ‘pattern-based’ approach to HRCT interpretation.
Updates to chapters on interstitial lung diseases and airways diseases & connective tissue diseases reflect the dramatic changes in thinking in these fields.
Includes new and improved features including key HRCT findings in separate tables in relevant sections, where relevant, and new and exciting topics including artificial intelligence and machine learning. [Reword to: Includes improved features such as key HRCT findings in separate tables, and new topics including artificial intelligence and machine learning. ?]

This book gets to the heart of what radiology is and what radiologists do. As a relatively young speciality, there is no guide for radiologists to act as a moral compass. Until now, that is. You will not find any dry technical matters in here. You will not find any clues about how to interpret images better. This book details the ‘other 50%’: the rest of the working week when a radiologist is not reading scans or performing procedures.
The essence of radiology is distilled and offered up to the reader. If you want a comfortable read that offers bland reassurances, look elsewhere. If you want a book that questions everything and discusses uncomfortable truths, this is the book for you. Each of the Rules addresses an important part of professional practice. This book is a manifesto for all radiologists across the globe to raise their game, to be more effective and to serve their patients better.
Fast Facts for the Radiology Nurse 2nd Edition
The second edition of this pocket-sized resource for radiology nurses continues to demystify complex procedures by providing concise yet comprehensive information on the basics of radiology. As the complexity of healthcare grows, so too does imaging ability. Different modalities, technologies, and skills levels must all work in harmony to provide precision images. Radiology nurses must be proactive, patient-focused, and able to work with a diverse team of individuals to care for the widest range of patients.
Describing essential procedures and protocols in quick access style, Fast Facts for the Radiology Nurse, Second Edition covers over 50 different Interventional Radiology procedures. Woven throughout is an emphasis on interprofessional care and effective communication along with guidance on forming and maintaining a high-performing team. Abundant Clinical Pearls disseminate the hard-earned wisdom of expert radiology nurses. Extensively updated with the most current guidelines and protocols, the second edition presents four completely new chapters on Legal Issues Affecting Radiology, Strategies for Working with Difficult People, Safety and Quality in the Radiology Setting, and Emergency Management and Catastrophe Response.
The diagnosis and management of venous disorders is a core competency of interventional radiology, comprising up to 75% of an interventional radiologist’s caseload in some institutions. Venous Interventional Radiology by prominent interventional radiologist Laura Findeiss and an impressive group of contributors is a highly practical vascular interventional radiology reference that covers a full spectrum of venous disease. The richly illustrated book starts with an opening chapter on venous anatomy, physiology, and epidemiology.
Disease-specific chapters cover common to complex disorders, from varicose veins and venous ulceration, to thromboembolic disease and pulmonary embolism. Each chapter presents the latest minimally invasive image-guided interventions for the diagnosis and management of a specific disease. Clinical cases provide discussion of patient presentation/symptoms, clinical evaluation, procedural and non-invasive management strategies, and follow-up, all of which are key to delivering comprehensive patient care.
Intravascular Ultrasound: From Acquisition to Advanced Quantitative Analysis covers topics of the whole imaging pipeline, ranging from the definition of the clinical problem and image acquisition systems to image processing and analysis, including the assisted clinical-decision making procedures and treatment planning (stent deployment and follow up). Atherosclerosis, a disease of the vessel wall that produces vessel narrowing and obstruction, is the major cause of cardiovascular diseases, such as heart attack or stroke. This book covers all aspects of this imaging tool that allows for the visualization of internal vessel structures and the quantification and characterization of coronary plaque.
